5 Comments to 2014 MAC Football Schedule Announced

  1. Josh said....

    The MAC. Where 11:45am = 3pm and 13 football teams is the way to go.

  2. BOB said....

    WEIRD — NO BOWLING GREEN VS MIAMI. TIRED OF THESE EAST COAST TEAMS COMING IN WITH NO PROGRAM, MESSING UP THE SCHEDULE, THEN GOING TO A BETTER CONFERENCE (MARSHALL, UCONN, TEMPLE, UMASS).

    • Phil said....

      UConn was never in the MAC, Central Florida was for football only like Temple and UMass. Also at least Marshall was an all sport member. If the league wants to go beyond 12 it needs to be with all sport members not just football only

    I’D LIKE TO SEE SOME TEAMS VENTURE OUT. IT SEEMS AS IF TOLEDO, BOWLING GREEN, MIAMI, NORTHERN ILLINOIS, CENTRAL MICHIGAN, AND OHIO COULD LEAVE AND GRAB SOME OTHERS FROM CONF USA AND AMERICAN CONFERENCE. LEAVE TESTICLE TECH, AINT NOTHING GOOD IN EAST OR WEST MICHIGAN, AKRON & KENT (HOW DO YOU TELL THE 2 APART?), BUFFALO BILLS/BULLS, AND UMASS TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES.

    How does NIU, who has been the best team in the MAC for the last 3-4 years, keep getting screwed out of having a big conference team come to DeKalb? Look at this schedule above and you see lesser MAC schools getting home games against the ACC, Big 10, etc. That doesn’t make any sense and is crap.
